Some time back, a nice gal on 'Allsorts' blog gave this freebie pattern. Isn't he cute? I've made quite a few since, giving him away to family and friends. I've made them in mostly Repro'30's fabrics. And they've been much loved.

I haven't got a real Scottie, my beloved beagle won't allow it!

Hope a nice day comes your way today! Thank goodness we're having a sunny day today.....

It's my birthday!

Oh no, another year bites the dust! It's all in the head, as they say......the head that is sprouting grey hairs as we speak! To make up for it, I had presents of the best kind: cash!!! Yeah!

I tried something new the other day: a fabric journal. The fun part was choosing the theme and the fabrics! Embellishing those pages got quite addictive too. The new owner of this particular journal likes it. I just might make another one!

Have a good one, everyone!

6 more weeks of winter!

I recently made a little Japanese coaster for a crafty blog friend - Pink Penguin I'm so glad she likes it! You have to check out her blog as well, she's such a talented and sweet person!

I've just opened my little business in - let's hope orders start trickling in........what better way to finance my little 'passion for fabrics'?? :) Hee hee....

Following tradition in Punxsutawney, a small town in Pennsylvania, the groundhog communicated his prediction to Bill Cooper, a top-hatted town elder who claims to be the only person in the world to speak "Groundhogese". Since 1887, Phil has seen his shadow 97 times, hasn't seen it 15 times, and there are no records for nine years, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club. The town, which this year attracted fans of the event from Japan, Iceland and Egypt, claims Phil has always been correct.

Seems like we're in for another 6 weeks of winter this side of the world! I am so ready for Spring! Cold hands, cold feet.........brrrr! But what a lovely excuse to be sitting by the warm crackling fire snuggled under a warm quilt with a mug of hot chocolate!

Thanks for visiting! Come safe! Oh, stay tuned for a giveaway very first!
